It's weird that Beckett calls it "Home Run History" when it has nothing to do with HRs.
Here's the entry from the 2003 Standard Catalog:
"1998 Pacific Home Run History Bonus Cards
Though they are not identified as such, this pair of Crown-style die-cut cards were bonus inserts in the Home Run History boxed set. Fronts have gold-foil highlights iwth the pivotal number in blue-sky tones. Backs have portrait photos and a few words about the remarkable record."
The set was only comprised of that Ripken card and a McGwire card. The 2003 edition, lists them at $2 each.
don't feel bad tim....i've seen plenty knowledgeable collectors confused by this card over the years (i only wish i could find the replies i'd posted for other that included tons of details)
taking for granted you have access to the beckett opg (once there you easily can navigate around if you need more info) :

Thanks for the information. I think I'm going to have to finally pick up one of those Standards. They seem very useful for oddball stuff.
